I think you mean Daniel Reigle , just 1 L.
If so he was born Nov 15, 1778 in Windsur Twn., Berks Co., married Margaret Kinsteler on April 1, 1798 in Tulpenhocken , Berks Co., Pa
They had at least 9 children that I know of , one of which Eliza Reigle became my 2nd Gr Grandmother.
Daniel died during the Civil War, have copies of letters written by him during the " Great War".
He passed Nov 24, 1862 in Catawissa , Columbia Co., Pa

Daniel had been a school teacher for many years, was a wonderful father , grandfather and great Grandpa . His letters show how much he not only adored his family, but carried them in his thoughts and prayers and missed them dearly.
He took the time to write" family " letters , those to be passed from each household. He thanked his grandchildren for writting to him and told them how much those letters ment to him..
Sure wish I could find those prized letters or copies of them.
Daniel and Margaret would have been my 3rd Gr Grandparents
